PAY FOR GUARDSMEN
IT Is suggested that the National
Guard could be considerably in
creased in efficiency if the men were
paid for their services. There is
good sens© in this. The patriotism
that takes a man to the colors as a
volunteer when his country calls is one
thing, to laboriously drill week after
week, giving up evenings that might
be employed in gainful enterprise or
amusement is another.
National Guardsmen would form
part of tho first line of defense if the
country bo invaded. On their effi
ciency, both as to personal prepared
ness as well as equipment and sup
plies, would depend largely our ability
to halt the progress of an enemy until
wo could fit for the field the millions
of men who would volunteer. If tjie
Guard Is worth anything its value lies
in ability to respond to instant call.
No better way of taking men into its
ranks could be found than by making
the service a means of increasing
their incomes.
Adjutant General Stewart has done
wonders with the Guard of Pennsylva
nia under the difficulties and restric
tion* which hedge the organization
about, due to niggardly appropriations
and antiquated legislative ideas. The
State Armory Board's activities have
been a step in the right direction, but
the nation and the State must join
forces more effectively in the future .
than they have in the pa&t if the
standard of tho organization in Penn
sylvania is to be materially raised.
For Instance, theTe should lie about
Harrisburg, within an hour's call, at
least one full regiment of Infantry, in
cluding machine gun companies ivud
other complements. This remanent
should be fully up to regular army
regulations in every feature. It should
be the flower of the organization, ready
to be swept into the rr.nks of the na
tion's defenders without a minute's de
lay for preparation. And along the
new Capitol Park extension, with sid
ings leading into thein, should- be a
series of armories and supply houses
well stored with arms, ammunition,
camp equipment and everything need
ful for an army in the field in shape
to be loaded on the instant.
The United States will never be at
tacked by any nation if we are pre
pared to resist. The only temptation
to invasion would be the hope of doing
in this country wha.t Germany tried
for and almost accomplished in France
victory at the very start by over
whelming numbers in the face of weak
opposition.
HOME WORK COUNTS
IT waa with a great deal of wisdom
that the educators of the city de
cided to make "home work" one of
the big factors in the domestic
science course at the Central high
school.
Each girl when named at roll call,
Is required to give an account of the
practical work she did at home that
day or the day before. Those who
report a creditable amount done, re
ceive high grades; those who do not,
receive marks according to their negli
gence. Judging by the reports sub
mitted to the cooking instructor, near
ly every one of the several hundred
taking the course have been doing
fully as much at home as at school.
The results of such practice are two
fold- First the students learn to do
things with those materials which may
be at hand in the work-a-day realm
of mother's kitchen; second, they get
valuable little suggestions from their
mothers who have that wealth of
knowledge which only long experience
can give.
Then, too, It can not but give many
an overworked mother a feeling of
gratitude to the school board for pro
viding a course of study wherein her
daughter Is compelled to help "get
dinner!"
SOWING AND REAPING
THROUGH careful investigation
and study of the city's schools
for defective children, a special
writer for the Telegraph has
oomo to the conclusion that alcohol
and vice are the two chief causes for
the many "tragedies of childhood."
What does this mean to you?
Father, mother, are you leading auch
lives that your children may eomo day
reap what you aro sowing? Young
man, young woman, are you doing the
things which some time will rebound
upon your children in weaknesses and
defects of body and mind?
Thare is hardly a man or a woman
who wllllnyly would do an Injury to a
■lfftie ehild, l*t alone the children of
MONDAY EVENING, '!
their own flesh nnd blood. And yet,
when alcohol Is poured Into the sys
tem or those other dissipations Indulg
ed in that go to destroy manhood or
womanhood, a death blow is dealt the
health and happiness of the little ones
of the far-off future.
This Is not a new truth; It is as old
as the race. But have our people
been remembering it? have many not
been forgetting that "the Iniquity of
the fathers" is visited "upon the chil
dren unto the third and fourth gene
ration?"
We're not proud, but we would like
to call the attention of some nearby
towns, who are boasting of Christmas
Saving Club receipts amounting to
$5,000 or SIO,OOO, to the fact that the
Telegraph Employes' Association
saved almost $9,000 last year. This as
sociation is run by the employes them
selves, for their own benefit, and tho
fact that thoy were able to lay by
$9,000 In this way, aside from what they
save in other ways, is a tribute to their
thrift and enterprise.
MICHAEIJ MTARTY
FAITHFT'L service is bound to win
recognition. No matter how
humble his station in life, he
who puts a little more into his
job than is required, who works for the
love of It rather than for the wage,
will in tho end reap his reward. We
have in mind at this minute one
Michael McCarty, a watchman for the
Pennsylvania Railroad.
Every child in Swarthmore knows
nnd loves Michael as a man worthy of
respect and regard. For sixteen years
he has stood sentinel at the railroad
crossing. Ills solicitude for the chil
dren passing to and from school has
meant not a single accident in all these
years. With this in mind the Home
and Bchool Association of that town
determined to express the community's
appreciation, so the members got to
gether and presented Michael with a
beautiful loving cup.
On one side of the silver cup is an
engraved reproduction of the safety
gates behind whjcli Michael has stood
through wind and rain, sunshine and
storm. Over it are the words "Safety
First." On the other side appears this
inscription: "1898-1904. To Michael
McCarty, for faithful service to the
children of Swarthmore, from the
Home School Association."
That is how it happens that McCarty
stands so well at headquarters that the
Pennsylvania Railfroad Company has
put him on its roll of honor and given
him place In its monthly bulletin as an
tdeal employe, with the assurance that
when it comes time to lay down his
flag Michael will be given a comfort
able pension to see him through his
old age.
It's an 111-wind that blows nobody
good. Hundreds of men out of work
rejoiced that yesterday's snowstorm
gave them an opportunity to earn a
day's wages.
HELPING THE DESTITUTE
HARRISBURG is responding nobly
to the call of the destitute both
at home and abroad. Our peo
ple have given generously, but
they have only begun. The approach
ing Christmas season will see our gifts
poured out more lavishly than ever be
fore.
In the glow of the Christmas spirit,
the anniversary of the birth of Christ,
with its "peace on earth, good will to
ward men/' we should hold no brief
for any of the warring nations. Our
thoughts should be with the suffer
ing ones of all. We should sweep from
our minds all human prejudice and
"realize that all the men of the fight
ing countries are equally our brothers
through God's creative hand," broth
ers in acknowledgment of a common
divinity, brothers in human love, hope
and aspiration. There are vacant
chairs and hungry families in Austria,
Germany and France, as well as in Bel
gium. We should remember them all,
making our contributions applicable
to the situation that those in charge
of the great work of relief believe is
most in need of them.
And finally, let us think well upon
the fact that we In America are up
standing in the Master's work of
spreading the thought of peace and
good will over all the earth, while the
older nations who should have learned
long ago the lesson we are now trying
to teach, are tearing at each other's
throats.
The Chamber of Commerce Bulletin
for December ought to be read from
cover to cover by everybody having the
good of Harrisburg at heart. It is full
of bright, readable matter of particular
import to the businessman and is as
optimistic of the city's future as the
most enthusiastic booster could desire.
WHAT'S THE MATTER?
WHAT'S the matter with Kan-
According to figures given
by an investigator for "The
Outlook," here are a few of the things
the matter with Kansas at the end of
her thirty years' prohibition of the
sale of alcoholic liquors:
No insane in eighty-seven of her
105 counties.
No feeble-minded in fifty-four of
these counties.
No inebriates In ninety-six coun
ties.
Poorliouses -empty in thirty-eight
counties.
Fifty jails empty and sixty-flve
counties without a prisoner in the
State penitentiary.
Only 600 paupers In entire State.
Grand Jury not nailed in some
counties In a decade.
Mortality rate drops from 17 to
7 per 1,000.
Only per cent, of Kansas popu
lation illiterate.
Here's hoping something soon gets
wrong with the other States.
City Council ought to consider peri
lously the erection of a municipal isola
tion hospital. We force persons hav
ing smallpox and other contagious dis
eases to accept the treatment provided
by the city. We compel them to va
cate their homes and enter the city's
own institution. It is our duty, then,
to provide for them every comfort and
convenience possible. The structure
near the poorhouse is antiquated and
unfit for hospital uses. Yv'e doubt'
wtietlieiva court would compel any per
son who set up his will against thac of
the Board of Health to accept treat
ment there under present conditions.
1 EVENING CHAT 11
Now that the period of lawmaking
is drawing nigh, attention Is being
once more directed to Capitol Hill,
where In three weeks there will gather
the men chosen to alter, mar or
repeal the statutes or the Keystone
State. There will be discussion of mat
ters of general Import and oratory of
more or less forco will resound
through the green and the blue cham
bers of the General Assembly. In
view of the rapidly approaching day
some speeches are probably being pre
pared now. Last session was notable,
especially in the House of Represen
tatives, for the number and variety of
the speeches. There were 106 brands
of oratory, some excellent, some me
diocre and some poor, «ome vigorous,
some weak and some puzzling. No
session in recent years developed any
thing like the oratory flung against tho
puinted celling, which in the end
served mainly to fntten the Legislative
Journal at public expense. Hours
were devoted to discussion of bills;
in striking contrast to the restricted
time permitted in the days when
"Square Deal," Voice of the People,"
"Free Speech" and various other catch
phrases were not bandied about as
freely. In fact, when one looks back
I over tho days of the last Legislature
it is astonishing how men of sound
understanding permitted themselves to
bo bored by a lot of talk just be
cause It was a period of popular un
rest, and how little men monopolized
time that was golden, and belonged to
the whole State, and how men leaned
over backward in efforts to give fair
play and were taken advantage of by
some who will not be back in the ma
hogany seats as a result of the recent
election. A couple of men of lone ex
perience on the "Hill" were discuss
ing things connected with the last
session that appear funny now, but
which were serious then. One made
this suggestion:
Behind the chair of the Speaker
In the House, or rather just a
little above it, there is a space In
the Abbey decoration that was
taken up by the dias that used to
rear itself over the Speaker's
chair. This has been painted
coal-color, probably because
there is a figure of a miner on the
painting beside It. The House
was satirically called "the cave of
the winds" by a newspaper cor
respondent last session. Now I
should think that It would be a
good thing to paint in that space,
in letters of gold, a short address;
one that is a model of English, a
magnificent expression of thought,
something that will live forever as
an example for orators, as well
as patriots. I mean Lincoln's ad
dress at Gettysburg.
lien and women played golf on the
three courses about Harrisburg on
Saturday afternoon and people took
rides and walks along the Susquehan
na and among' the valleys of Dauphin
and Cumberland county in plain view
of snow-covered mountains. The after
noon was one of those remarkable
periods that come in mid-December,
when the winds art not keen and the
air makes outdoor exercise not only a
relief but a pleasure. The First and
Second mountains and the York hills
were covered for half their height
with snow, the fall being heavy and
the crests appearing as though some
giant hand had sprinkled them with
sugar. The snow line was rather
sharply marked, especially on Second
mountain, while the tops of the First,
especially that wall dividing Cumber
land and Perry counties, was dusted
with snow In irregular lines.
The number of visitors to the Capi
tol has been showing some rather un
usual turns lately and, according to
what men about the great building
say, there are more roaming through
the corridors on Saturday afternoons
and on Sundays than before. In fact,
it seems as though Sunday was be
coming a rather popular visitors' day,
although the departments are closed
on that day and the guides have that
day to themselves. There are appar
ently a good many who are content to
gaze on the beauties of the rotunda
and the legislative chambers.
Incidentally, it intent be added that
a courthouse is a rather unusual place
to find sightseers, yet scarcely a week
goes by but some person drops in to
see what the courtrooms look like and
if they can see one of the judges on
the bench they are well satis&ed. Most
of these vlstors are people from the
county districts, many of whom never
«et here except once or twice a year.
Two men made a bet. One wagered
that while he could buy "Tipperary"
in a music store he could not get "Die
Wacht Am Rhein." They went to two
stores. At the first the clerk, scenting
some fun, gravely declared that all
they had in stock was the "Star Span
gled Banner" and, managing to dig
up both of the foreign songs, made
three sales, in the second store they
said they were neutrals and had every
one of the national airs and those
made popular by the war.

Candidate For Speaker
Considerable sounding out of senti
ment In regard to reapportionment of
the State into congressional and legis
lative districts Is going on among State
officials and men who will sit in the
next general assembly and in all prob
ability several bills will be drawn for
submission, but it is stated at the
Capitol that no policy has been out
lined. The State has not been appor
tioned since 1906, the pressure of so
many bills last session preventing con
sideration in 1913.
—\yiUle It has been stated that the
Republican organization prefers to
maintain the at-large system of elect

did for ears prior to 1906, some <>f the

cism by falling to apportion the State
live years after the census has been
taken and especially when conditions
in some districts show inequality of
population.
—Elaborate calculations and maps
were worked out last session and arc
on hand for the assistance of the law
makers in taking up the subject.
—Governor John K. Tener is plan
ning to complete all of the appoint
ments he has to make within the next
three weeks and on January 2 or 4 he
will announce the name of the man he
will appoint as judge to succeed Rob

bench. Jf Justice John Stewart should
resign by thnt time the Governor will
name President Judge George Kunkel,
of this county, to the place. The Gov

Ambler has been a member of the
committee on appropriations for sev
eral years and is also an authority on
roads. The entrance of Ambler and
the declaration of the Vares that if
Wilson announces his candidacy they
will be for him has started the friends

THE CELLO
Among my friends I count a cello,
A dear old plaintive, soulful fellow,
AY ho bends his neck close to my ear,
And whispers secrets sweet and
clear
In measures soft and mellow.
And when I at the fall of night
His sweet companionship invite,
He snuggles closely by my knee,
And purrs and sistis in sympathy—
•He reads my thoughts aright.
For should I dream of love, his deep-
Ton<<d, throbbing strings the gamut
sweep
Of old, sweet mem'ries fond and
true.
Of bowers rare and skies of blue,
That Love's dear secrets deep.
And if perchance a martial rage
Has seized me that I may assuage,
Only a# he with vibrant strings
In march and triumph booms and
sings
Until I turn the page.
Should I on Sorrow's ocean drift
First slowly, faster, then so swift
He gathers up the moods T feci,
And winds them back on life's vast
reel,
With all the tajigles rift.

IT SNOWED
By Whit Dinger
I don't feel quite so good to-day
(The reason 1 well know);
It's all because of yesterday's
Prollflc fall of enow.
The ground was scarcely covered o'er
With white, ere both my boys
A sled ride, with me at the rope,
Demanded with much noise.
I tugged and pulled and pushed that
sled
Around three good sized blocks,
O'er pavements smooth, and unpaved
streets
Filled with big. Jutting rocks.
And then last night when into rain
The snow changed, wifey said:
"Get out and shovel snow"—l did
'Til time to go to bed.. ,
I'm strong for all this sentiment
About a Christmas white.
But. gee, I hate to shovel snow
Upon a rainy night.
And if the blamed snow has to come
Why does it choose a day
When I'm at home to rest a bit
And chase my rest away?
CHRISTMAS FANCIES
When Christmas bells are swinging
above the ilelds of snow,
We hear sweet voices ringing from
lands of long ago.
And etched on vacant places
Are half-forgotten faces
Of friends we used to cherish, and
loves wc used to know —
When Christmas bells are swinging
above the fields of snow.
Uprising from the ocean of the pre
sent surging near,
Wc see, with strange emotion that is
not free from fear,
That continent Elysian
Long vanished from our vision,
Youth's lovely lost Atlantis, so mourn
ed for and so dear.
Uprising from the ocean of the pre
sent surging near.
When gloomy gray Decembers are
roused to Christmas mirth.
The dullest life remembers there once
was joy* on earth,
And draws from youth's recesses
Some memory it possesses,
And, gazing through the lens of time,
exaggerates its worth.
AVlien gloomy gray December is
roused to Christmas mirth.
When hanging up the holly or mis
tletoe, 1 wis
Each heart recalls some folly that lit
the world with bliss.
Not all the seers and sages
With wisdom of the ages
Can give the mind such pleasure as
memories of that kiss
When hanging up the holly or mis
teltoe, 1 wis.
For life was made for loving, and love
alone repays,
A« passing years are proving, for all
of Time's sad ways.
There lies a sting in pleasure,
And faine gives shallow measure.
And wealth is but a phantom that
mocks the restless days.
For life was made for loving, and only
loving pays.
When Christinas bells are pelting the
air with silver chimes,
And silences are melting to soft, melo
dious rhymes,
Let Love, the world's beginning.
End fear and hate and singing;
Let Love, the God Eternal, be wor
shipped in all climes,
When Christmas bells are pelting the
air with silver chimes.
—Ella Wheeler Wilcox, in National
Magazine for December.

with a period within the memory of

problems that are still demanding
solution."
The publishers have planned this
volume with the belief that there
should, at this time, be interest and
service In tracing the influences which
have brought the German Km per or
and his advisers, and so large a pro
portion of the German people back of
the Imperial Government, to the state
of mind in which they entered upon
the present struggle for the domina
tion of Europe and for the political
leadership of the civilized world.
A DKTERMINED WILL
There is no chance, no destiny, no fate
Can circumvent, or hinder, or control
The firm resolve of a determined soul.
Gifts count for nothing; will alone is
great.
All things give way before it, soon
or late.
What obstacles can stay the mighty
force
Of the sea-seeking river in its courne.
Or cause the ascending orb of flay
to wait?
Each will-born soul will win what it
reserves.
Let the fool prate of luck! The for
tunate
Is he whose earnfjt purpose never
swerves;
Whose slightest action or inaction
serves
The one great aim.
Why even death stands still
And waits an hour sometimes on such
a will. —Larcom.
